However, it lacks user presets and there’s no software editor. There are buttons, a transport panel, nine rotary controls and nine sliders.
The usual collection of connections lurks around the back of the UF5. Four velocity curves are provided and aftertouch is supported, too.
Each of these controls has at least one preset function and this is printed next to it keyboarv the chassis. Optional FireWire expansion board: Each rotary can operate either a designated function – such as pan – or a user-assigned parameter.
These click satisfyingly when oeyboard press them and help you to cut down on your mouse time, which is always a good thing. The UF5 is very solidly built and has some inventive performance features. CME’s MIDI controller keyboards are designed to be hardy enough to withstand the rigours of life on the road yet also provide enough functionality to merit inclusion in a home studio setup.
The only problem is that they’re positioned too close together. We like the idea of multi-use faders and rotaries, and the transport controls are very useful. Each keyboard offers the same MIDI control features but has a different number of keys. The UF5’s top surface is peppered with ccme.
The lack of any easy editing software might put some people off, but the UF5 is perfect for those who want a keyboard for the stage as well as the studio. To the left of the controller is a collection of chunky Transport controls.
Several other momentary buttons give you direct mjdi to a range of functions.

Exhibiting a curious combination of modern and retro styling, the angular, contoured chassis is made entirely from metal.
The rotary controls are tactile, centre-detented offerings that operate smoothly. We’re looking at the four-octave UF5, the smallest model in the range.
The sliders’ design is less orthodox – these are all set flush with the controller’s surface and therefore it doesn’t matter that they’re packed tightly together. The functions of the sliders and rotaries can be set using the buttons next to them. The sliders can be assigned to control volume levels for channels andand controller values of your choice, effectively giving you 24 sliders worth of control.
The semi-weighted, synth-action keys are heavier than you’ll find on any other controller in this price range and feel great in use.
